Amazon intends to spend $1 billion every year on movies for theaters


Amazon plans to produce 12 to 15 films a year for theatrical release. Given that Universal and Warner have nearly comparable budgets, the investment might increase revenues by 15%–20%.

Next year, Amazon will distribute fewer movies in theatres, but it will gradually expand that number. It has the same number of releases as well-known studios like Paramount Pictures.
